BRB Vs SYD Dream 11 Prediction: Brisbane Roar Vs Sydney. Top placed Sydney no longer look the unstoppable juggernaut of March.
After only manager to scamper their way to a 1-1 draw with Adelaide United the last time around, Sydney find themselves in a rut at the moment. The result leaves the side bereft of a win in its last three encounters with the only win coming for the club in their first encounter since the restart of the A-League 2019-20.
Although the results hardly put the side in jeopardy of losing out on their top spot, the team knows it can’t continue in this manner if it is to truly challenge for this season’s title. The results are threatening to unravel what was till now an enchanting sortie, one where the side was touted as outright favourites for the trophy back in March.
Elsewhere, Brisbane Roar’s inconsistencies see the club continue to struggle to nail their place in the top 6 of the league. Although they are currently as high as fourth place, the side has the lone win since the league’s restart, results which accord them just a six point cushion from 7th spot at the moment.
With Sydney stuttering in form at the moment, Brisbane Roar have a real chance of coming out of this tie unblemished. The side’s defence sees it approach towards imminent outing with a fair cry of perturbing the league leaders.
This will be a draining tie for both the teams, one where either side is made to sweat it out over gruelling 90 minutes as it pushed hard for a win. We envision this one ending with a one goal win for the table toppers with the side’s attack serving the side fruitfully.

Dream 11 Picks
Jamie Young from Brisbane Roar will be ingrained in our Dream 11 side as the goal-keeper for the upcoming contest. The side’s shot stopper has been a crucial name in regaling his side’s supporters in a steady campaign, one here his tenacious brand of goal-keeping has seen him give his side the identity of a staunch and stalwart defence.
The fact that Sydney’s defence has let in the least number of goals isn’t the only reason for us to be opting for the side’s entire backline for the upcoming outing. The laggard nature of Brisbane Roar’s defence played a massive part in our decision, a side which will find it extremely cumbersome to break apart this Sydney setup.
It’s just the side Sydney will be looking to occult and shut down from scoring to rope in their first cleansheet since the league’s restart. It sees us opt for all of Alex Wilkinson, Ryan McGowan, Harry van-der-saag and Michael Zullo from the side for the forthcoming showdown.
Although Brisbane Roar are going to have to pull their socks up as they look to quash this Sydney defence, the side know they can do so as long as they have Brad Imam at their disposal. With 4 goals and 6 assists for himself, he’s kept waging a lone battle for the club all season long to keep the side well within the playoff spots.
Jay O’Shea has partnered up with him to see the two form a daunting partnership in the attacking unit for the side. Elsewhere, with Sydney making for the top scoring side in the competition with a mammoth 47 goals in their kitty, it was only prudent of us to opt for a duo from the side as well.
We begin with the pick of Milos Ninkovic who has the five goals and three assists, partnering him up Anthony Caceres who has been the side’s most consistent and dependable name since the league’s restart.
Adam Le Fondre’s goal was reasonable for Sydney foraging their way a draw the last time around, a strike which saw him stall the halt the side’s two match losing spree for the club.12 goal man Scott McDonald will be our pick from Brisbane Roar meanwhile with the side’s top scorer having scored almost 50% of his side’s goals.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 19 goals Adam has in his kitty see us indulge in the pick of the striker as our captain while Inman is our vice-captain.
